“The Age of Stupid” - The year is 2055. The earth is devastated. One man remains in “The Global Archive,” a vast storage facility protecting all of humanity’s collective achievements. “The Age of Stupid” focuses on the archivist as he tries to work out why we didn’t save ourselves while we still had the change.
“Surviving Progress” - Technological advancement, economic development, population increase - are they signs of a thriving society? Executive produced by Martin Scorsese, this documentary guides us through the major “progress traps” facing civilization in the areas of technology, economics, consumption, and the environment.
